"Your efforts in the missionary position have not gone unnoticed..."

This morning, in the moments between sleep and wakening, I think I may have seen an apparition. I believe it was St Brigid, the rightful patron saint of Ireland.
She was a sturdy, ruddy faced, woman with boots clabbered in mud and cow dung. If she hadn't been festooned with the reed crosses that bear her name I might not have recognised who she was.
"Sandy," she says to me, "while your efforts in the missionary position have not gone un-noticed, it's time to call it a day with those AB atheists. They are all, each and every one, beyond any human help. You'd be as well saving your breath to cool your porridge."
My question is this. Should I discuss this with my confessor when next I see him?

Who is the wrongful patron saint of Ireland?
Question Author
Sadly, they weren't glossy leather thigh length boots.
Question Author
St Patrick, the foreign usurper. Who else?
LG, //I am not sure I like the idea of Sandy adopting the missionary position with us atheists on AB - I dont recall that he even had the good manners to ask first //

Watch him, LG. He might be one to kiss and tell. ;o)
St Columba, Sandy ?
Did she have her 'navvy boots' on Sandy?
St Brigit, a virgin, wearing (nothing but) thigh length leather boots laying in the missionary position, that certainly would not go unnoticed.

You'd expect an envoy for the other world to be clad in some refulgent garb. But no. She seemed to be wearing typical farmers wife rig out. An old gaberdine coat tied at the waist with bailing twine and the bespattered boots.

Naomi, in matters connubial I believe that silence is golden.
Never mind this Bridget lass Sandy. Keep up the good work of keeplng us entertained.
//Naomi, in matters connubial I believe that silence is golden.//

Very commendable, Sandy. I expect that'll be a tick for you in God's Big Book of Judgement.
I fear that Sandy may already have been judged after such a licentious train of thought. All that good workk gone for nought after a moments weakness, how sad.

Jomifl, you've clearly misunderstood one of the basic and most attractive tenets of Catholicism. You can sin, fill your boots, so to speak, and as long as you truly repent all is forgiven.
Naomi, a golden silence allows me to hide the paucity of my experience.
Sandy, how can you truly repent after such thoughts? Every time you try to repent you will remember what you are repenting and have to start again. :-)
Question Author
Happily, I'm just a poor sinner, not a theologian. Questions such as that ^ have driven strong men to drink.
Fortunately alcohol is not forbidden in the ten commandments so is it OK to drink yourself to oblivion, then repent whilst you can't remember what you are repenting? Is that why so many catholic priests are drunks, they are trying to forget their sins?
Question Author
Sacerdotal sacrifices shouldn't be sneered at. Who can blame a chap if, at the end of a long day, he broaches the brandy?
I had the beginning of the day in mind.
I'm led to believe that Brandy makes you randy........
Question Author
Towards the end of my drinking career I would have a glass of whiskey, purely for medicinal purposes, every morning. It never did me any harm.
Do priests make any sacrifices Sandy? don't they do what they do for their own reasons and toward their own ends(mortal or philosophical).
